Testing Grounds, Live Art & Music: Call for Applications

Testing Grounds is inviting artists application for performances at Permanent Gallery, Brighton, on Sat 18 Jul 2009.

Testing Grounds is a performance platform and development opportunity for emergent and established artists actively exploring Live Art or Music, including Experimental Theatre, Performance Art, Sound Art and Movement. Testing Grounds is an experimental meeting place for artists, audiences and ideas.

Applicants must commit to develop and present a new piece of work, or take past work in a new direction. Testing Grounds aims to be a supportive opportunity to take risk, to test new ideas rather than reproducing a set performance.

We offer a fee and production support.

To apply, please contact Nadege Derderian, nadegederderian@hotmail.com to receive an application pack. Or simply email us the following:

1. A statement about your artistic practice (Max 100 words).
2. A proposal. Please tell us about the performance you would like to do (including description, duration, brief technical requirements.), describe the ideas behind the work and how you think you would benefit from taking part (Max 400 words)
3. Accompanying documentation: photo and/or video via website links or attached files. If you do not wish to submit documentation please explain your motivations.
4. Your CV.
5. Image suitable for publicity (min size A5, 300dpi). This is optional.
